A Rare Case of Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumor Arising From a Jejunal Pancreatic Heterotopia.

Int J Surg Pathol 2020 Jun 2:1066896920928126. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Washington University in St. Louis, MO, USA.

Pancreatic heterotopia is a well-described entity occurring at multiple abdominal sites, most commonly the stomach and small intestine. They can develop similar disease processes as the pancreas ranging from acute pancreatitis, cyst formation, or neoplasms, most commonly ductal adenocarcinoma. Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) arising in pancreatic heterotopias are exceedingly rare with only 3 prior published cases. Read More

Evaluation of the expression of somatostatin receptors by immunohistochemistry in neuroendocrine tumors of the small intestine.

Authors:

Pol J Pathol 2020 ;71(1):30-37

Most neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) are characterized by the presence of somatostatin receptors (SSTR) which we use in location diagnostics and treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression of somatostatin receptors by immunohistochemistry in tissue obtained after surgery of the primary focus in the small intestine. The group of patients consisted of 41 people, in 18 cases the primary tumor was in the jejunum and in 23 in the ileum. Read More

[Heterogeneity in PD-L1 expression on infiltrating immune cells between the primary and metastatic breast cancers].

Zhonghua Bing Li Xue Za Zhi 2020 May;49(5):430-434

Department of Pathology, the Fourth Hospital of Hebei Medical University,Shijiazhuang 050011, China.

To investigate the expression difference in PD-L1 on mesenchymal infiltrating immune cells between the primary and metastatic breast cancers, and to explore its relationship with clinicopathological parameters. All cases of primary breast cancer and their matched metastases diagnosed at the Fourth Hospital of Hebei Medical University between January 2010 and December 2018 were included. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) was used to detect the expression of PD-L1 (SP142) in interstitial infiltrating immune cells, and the expression of ER, PR, HER2 and Ki-67 in primary and matched metastases was detected.

Oxidative-stress-driven mutagenesis in the small intestine of the gpt delta mouse induced by oral administration of potassium bromate.

Mutat Res 2020 Feb - Mar;850-851:503136. Epub 2020 Jan 15.

National Institute of Health Sciences, Division of Genetics and Mutagenesis, Tonomachi, Kawasaki-ku, Kawasaki, Kanagawa 210-9501, Japan.

Tumorigenesis induced by oxidative stress is thought to be initiated by mutagenesis, but via an indirect mechanism. The dose-response curves for agents that act by this route usually show a threshold, for unknown reasons. To gain insight into these phenomena, we have analyzed the dose response for mutagenesis induced by the oral administration of potassium bromate, a typical oxidative-stress-generating agent, to gpt delta mice.

Mol Biol (Mosk) 2020 Jan-Feb;54(1):146-152

Institute of Fundamental Medicine and Biology, Kazan Federal University, Kazan, 420008 Russia.

Migration of cancer cells from the primary tumor site to nearby tissues is the starting point of the metastatic process. The invasive properties of cells are especially important for carcinomas, since tumor cells need to overcome the basement membrane and go beyond its boundaries to the underlying tissues. Substances that reduce the invasive ability of malignant cells are promising as antimetastatic agents. Read More

Despite the widespread adoption of organoids as biomimetic tissue models, methods to comprehensively analyze cell-type-specific post-translational modification (PTM) signaling networks in organoids are absent. Here, we report multivariate single-cell analysis of such networks in organoids and organoid cocultures. Simultaneous analysis by mass cytometry of 28 PTMs in >1 million single cells derived from small intestinal organoids reveals cell-type- and cell-state-specific signaling networks in stem, Paneth, enteroendocrine, tuft and goblet cells, as well as enterocytes.

Malignant gastrointestinal neuroectodermal tumor, presenting as a second malignancy after gastric adenocarcinoma: a case report and literature review.

J Gastrointest Oncol 2019 Dec;10(6):1144-1150

Department of Pathology, Zhongshan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, Shanghai 200023, China.

Malignant gastrointestinal neuroectodermal tumor (GNET), is a rare soft tissue sarcoma. Here we report a case of GNET arising in the intestine of a 33-year-old female, who had been treated for gastric adenocarcinoma with surgery and chemotherapy at the age of 19, in 2001. Since then, she underwent follow-up care annually and kept disease free. Read More

A Single Small Bowel Hemangioma Detected by Video Capsule Endoscopy in a Patient Presenting with Iron-deficiency Anemia - Two Case Reports.

Prague Med Rep 2019 ;120(4):138-143

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Department of Internal Medicine, University Hospital Centre Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia.

Hemangioma of the small intestine is a rare vascular malformation which mostly presents as occult gastrointestinal bleeding and iron-deficiency anemia. Patients are often asymptomatic except of fatigue due to anemia. Hemangiomas can arise anywhere in the luminal gastrointestinal tract, with jejunum as the most commonly involved site. Read More

A rare case of Epstein-Barr virus-positive mucocutaneous ulcer that developed into an intestinal obstruction: a case report.

BMC Gastroenterol 2020 Jan 13;20(1). Epub 2020 Jan 13.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Kawasaki Municipal Tama Hospital, 1-30-37, Shukugawara, Tama-Ku, Kawasaki, Japan.

Background: Epstein-Barr virus-positive mucocutaneous ulcer (EBV-MCU) is a new category of mature B-cell neoplasms. Ulcers occur in the oropharyngeal mucosa, skin, and gastrointestinal tract. The onset of EBV-MCU is suggested to be related to the decreased immunity of the patient, the causes of which include the use of immunosuppressive agents and aging. Read More

Design, Implementation, and in Vivo Validation of a Novel Proton FLASH Radiation Therapy System.

Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 2020 02;106(2):440-448

Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Electronic address:

Purpose: Recent studies suggest that ultrahigh-dose-rate, "FLASH," electron radiation therapy (RT) decreases normal tissue damage while maintaining tumor response compared with conventional dose rate RT. Here, we describe a novel RT apparatus that delivers FLASH proton RT (PRT) using double scattered protons with computed tomography guidance and provide the first report of proton FLASH RT-mediated normal tissue radioprotection.

Methods And Materials: Absolute dose was measured at multiple depths in solid water and validated against an absolute integral charge measurement using a Faraday cup. Read More

Esophago-Gastric Cancer after One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass (OAGB).

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2019 Nov-Dec;114(6):686-692

One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass (OAGB) is a bariatric technique that combines a long tube-like gastric conduit with a wide end-to-side gastro-jejunostomy. It is a non-complex operation with a low frequency of intestinal obstructions and an excellent long-term weight loss, however, there is a fear of esophagogastric cancer. This narrative review explores the risk of cancer development after OAGB. Read More

Çukurova University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of General Surgery, Adana, Turkey.

While appendiceal intussusception is an uncommon pathological condition, mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix is a particularly rare entity. We report a case of appendiceal intussusception induced by a mucinous cystadenoma presenting as acute appendicitis. A 37-year-old woman was admitted with a one-day history of acute onset, right lower abdominal pain. Read More
